• Alphonse Mucha (24 July 1860 – 14 July 1939)

    One of the most interesting and distinctive Art Nouveau painters of his time and since, Mucha owes much of his remembered legacy to the diligence of his son, who spent much of his own life writing about the talent of his father. Many artists list Mucha as an influence, including one of my favorites: Stuckist painter Paul Harvey.
